Um, alright. So IHOP -- ye olde International House of Pancakes -- is partnering with the NFL because, well, why not.
They've renamed their scrambles after different levels of experience, and have produced AFC- and NFC-specific meals. I guess it's to appeal to its core constituency, who were probably around for the AFL days and still have a fierce conference loyalty. (Or because IHOP has red berries to represent the AFC and blue berries to represent the NFC.)
Anyway -- you have two options. Each conference has their own pancakes, with the AFC getting strawberry banana toppings, and the NFC getting blueberries and bananas.
The product of note, though, is the stuffed french toast, which is now shaped -- yes -- like a football. The AFC gets strawberries, the NFC gets compote.

The games this week are much less hyped than last week's, but they still feature closely-ranked teams vying for conference pecking order in bowl season.
